Another way to give to the ministry of Camp Homewood
Giving gifts is how we celebrate, express graitude or affection and mark special occassions such as Christmas or birthdays. Gift giving isn't limited, sometimes the best gifts are those given spontaneously "just because". To make giving a gift to Camp Homewood simple (and a little bit fun!) we’ve put together a gift catalogue of items you may wish to purchase to partner with us in the exciting work we are doing to build God's kingdom. Camp Homewood depends on the generous gifts of thoughtful donors to serve our guests and build our future. Thanks for helping us change lives!
Send a Kid to Camp! - $100
Remember the excited chatter that happens after a week of camp? Some parents are eager for their children to have stories of their own, but due to unforeseen circumstances, they just can't aford it. It is our hope that every child who wants to experience a week of camp this year will be able to join in the fun! Your gift can make it happen!
Homewood runs on volunteers! Each year, 40-50 young adults volunteer to serve as directors, tent leaders, activity leaders, lifeguards, nurses, wranglers, and kitchen help. They make summer camp happen! Their energy care and commitment makes a week of Homewood memorable and fun. There are 2 ways to give to invest in these incredible young adults:
Sponsor a Summer Camp Counsellor - $50
This summer we will award almost $24,000 in "toothpaste money" to our summer volunteers! A first year volunteer recieves $50 per week in recognition of their hard work. Why not sponsor a camp counsellor for a week or two this summer? Just imagine how bright their smile will be when they recieve your gift!
Counsellor Scholarship Fund (Bursary Fund) - $100
We could not accomplish our mission without our volunteer summer staff. Many of our volunteers are college students who have decided to serve God by devoting their entire summer to ministry. They are trusting God to provide for their needs for tuition and living expenses next fall. The Bursary Fund allows you to give a gift to a student who has given generously of their time and energy to impact the next generation. Our goal for 2017 is $15,000 (10 awards of $1,500).
Each of our full-time staff families serve as 'missionaries'. Please help us honour them over the long-haul as they serve camp year round. Camp provides a base salary of $550 per month- the balance of their support comes from generous people like you.
This donation will go towards all the great things that go on to make Camp Homewood such a fun place to be! Whether it be for new volleyballs, craft supplies or maybe pellets or bows for the ranges. Whatever it is, you can know that your money will go to great use and be enjoyed by all who come.

Waterfront Equipment - $100
Imagine yourself on the water in a beautiful new kayak or maybe on a brand new tube behind the boat or maybe a brand new boat all together! Your gift could make this happen! (And then you need to make sure you come to camp to test it out!)
Ranch Donation - $200
Ranch camp and trail rides has always been a special part of Homewood. Your ranch donation will go towards maintenance and care of our Homewood horses, such as hay and overall health needs, as well as our tack and barn needs.
Sailing needs- $25
The sky is blue, the gentle breeze is blowing, and the only sound you hear is the water rippling as the wind pushes against the sail. Porpoises swim in the wake, and if you're lucky, you might just spot a pod of Orca's! Many adults and kids love to participate in this unique ocean experience. Each year there is much behind the scenes action happens before boats set sail. This gift will help with the ongoing costs of boats and equipment maintenance and repairs.
Gift for Projects - $50
Funding projects so camp looks fresh and everything works like new is a top priority. Our maintenance men and our volunteers need materials and supplies to get the job done! Our current projects include a studs out renovations of the main floor of the Guest House ($25,000) and new shop space in the Bus Barn ($40,000). The Guest House was built in the late 50's and lacks a few items now considered standard (like insulation and double glazed windows!). This is much more than cosmetic!
